Storyline

When Sally (Charlotte Greenwood) and Eve (Leila Hyams) take a vacation together to make their rich husbands miss them, the boys (Reginald Denny and Harry Stubbs) promptly invite over two gold digging actresses (Lilian Bonds and Merna Kennedy) for an after hours "audition." But when the girls return expectedly and catch the lads in the act, they clean out their bank accounts, pick up two lugs (Cliff Edwards and Kane Richmond) and proceed to teach their spouses a lesson. Based on a play by Elmer Harris (Johnny Belinda) and co-adapted by the author himself, Stepping Out stars zany second banana Charlotte Greenwood in a rare, top-billed performance. Renowned for her legendary high-kick, Greenwood performs the long-legged shtick that made her famous as well as a charming duet with fellow vaudevillian Cliff "Ukulele Ike" Edwards, who later gained screen immortality as the voice of Jiminy Cricket.

slim pickings, mostly Greenwood's
17 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Of all the fine performers in this extended and leaden attempt at mixing slapstick with drawing room style wit, Charlotte Greenwood shines most consistently, though even she must fight the material at almost every turn. In the 75 minutes of running time there are perhaps 3 or 4 really funny, clever exchanges. Two examples: "Have you no conscience?" – "Sure, but I ignore it!" Or: (to paraphrase), Greenwood: "You're not very big." Cliff Edwards: "Let's go into the other room together and I might surprise you." Adapted from a hit Broadway comedy, the slender plot involves neglected Hollywood wives (Greenwood and Leila Haymes) who, after catching their wealthy husbands (Harry Stubbs and Reginald Denny) in the company of two voracious gold diggers (Lillian Bond and Merna Kennedy), run off together to a Mexican resort only to find themselves chased by a pair of male gold diggers (Cliff Edwards and Kane Richmond). The husbands pursue the wives, the female gold diggers pursue the husbands and they all get mixed up together in Caliente where they indulge in endless belabored farcical encounters. If one is a Greenwood fan, and she surely is something interesting to behold when compared to most of the Hollywood females of her time, this film is worth a look. Otherwise there is very little to recommend.
